These Hootsuite Professional Services Terms (the “Professional Services Terms”) apply to all training and other professional services purchased from Hootsuite in an Authorization Form, including in any statement of work or other attachment to that Authorization Form (the “Hootsuite Professional Services”). These Professional Services Terms are incorporated into, and form part of, the terms applicable to your access to and use of the Hootsuite Enterprise Services (the “Terms”). Capitalized terms not defined in these Professional Services Terms have the meanings given to them in the Terms.

1. Professional Services.

We will provide the Hootsuite Professional Services to you for the term set out in the applicable Authorization Form, and will perform the Hootsuite Professional Services in a professional manner in accordance with generally accepted industry standards.

2. Cooperation.

In order for us to perform the Hootsuite Professional Services, you will: make yourself reasonably available at such times as we may reasonably request; allocate sufficient resources, perform any tasks, and deliver any materials, including Customer Content, reasonably necessary to enable us to perform the Hootsuite Professional Services; respond to our inquiries related to the Hootsuite Professional Services; and provide complete, accurate, and timely information, data, and feedback all as reasonably required by us. If you do not comply with your obligations in this Section 2 in a timely manner, delays may result and we may charge you additional fees.

3. Time of Performance.

We will use commercially reasonable efforts to provide the Hootsuite Professional Services according to the schedule set forth in the applicable Authorization Form or otherwise communicated to you in writing.

If we are able to accommodate your requested Change, we will provide an Authorization Form that includes, among other things, the additional Fees, if any, and other terms that will apply to the Change, and which will be deemed to amend and modify the original Authorization Form for the Hootsuite Professional Services subject to the Change. If you do not sign the Authorization Form for the Change, the original Authorization Form will continue in full force and effect, unamended.
